“If you can watch this video without looking away, flinching, or gasping you're made of tougher stuff than us." – NOISEY

Featuring vocals from Eliza Doolittle, ‘KILLING’ became the soundtrack to one of the most anxiety-driven and heart-stopping dance displays ever seen. The video features professional knife thrower James Taylor and blade dodging dancer Shannelle 'Tali' Fergus.
‘KILLING’ was preceded by track ‘WHEEL’ which was accompanied by a gif-inspired psychedelic montage video.
Meeting in London, the production duo 'We Are Shining' (are Acyde and Morgan) discovered an affinity for making music together after several years of connecting at some of London most forward thinking and musically expansive club nights.
Exhibiting an outright lack of restraint with their instinctive outbursts of beats, raw grooves and psychedelic noise - what holds their music together is what should tear it apart. Adhering to no single style or genre, We Are Shining stand out for their unique and distinctly modern approach.
